Blind Painter, Sargy Mann: Painting with Inner Vision
We are powerful beyond measure and have no limitations except the ones we agree to.
This is an incredibly story about professional artist, Sargy Mann, who developed cataracts at age 34/35, which then continued into complete retinal detachment and on to a perforated ulcer that then created total blindness. He didn’t know if he could continue painting, but wondered and began to experiment, experiencing extraordinary sensations and discovered there IS painting after blindness. He reinvented painting, just like he reinvented his life without sight.
Now, serious art collectors own his creations and his paintings sell for upward of $80,000.
Thank you Dawn for sharing this with me. Dawn remembered things I’ve written about my own eyesight, being legally blind for most of my life, and how I feel about my inner vision being of most value to me.
Being an artist myself, this story hits home, but in general I feel it shares how we can turn any perceived limitation into a powerful gift, and how life is about continual reinvention and creative renewal, as we embrace transformational shifts that impact our lives.
